From 61 million dollars for a flood control project to the chance for flood victims to recoup some of their sales tax payments for rebuilding, there were a lot of good things for the city of Minot in the legislative session that just ended.
That's what city finance director Cindy Hemphill says.
Here's a partial list of funding coming to Minot and local flood victims as a result of legislative action.
61 million dollars to advance the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection plan with engineering and property acquisitions.
More than 12 million dollars in oil impact funds for infrastructure projects.
A chance to qualify for part of 60 million dollars for airport projects to continue to effort at building a new airport terminal.
An expansion of the Rebuilders Loan program to allow landlords to get loans - and increase loan amounts for homeowners.
Help for people still in FEMA homes to finance the purchase of permanent housing.
And a sales tax rebate of up to 25-hundred dollars for flood victims who've spent money rebuilding their homes - that rebate begins on July First.
Hemphill says the 12 million in infrastructure funding is very important for the city.
(Cindy Hemphill, Minot Finance Director) "That is huge to the city of Minot because anything we can offset with money from the state doesn't get passed on to the consumer that is having to pay with water bills and different things like that."
Hemphill says this is the closest the city has worked with local legislators in the time she's been finance director.
